Christmas is a time of joy and wonder that we believe all families should experience.
You’ve made it through a hard year and we want you to come and celebrate that with us on December 10. Church on the Hill will host our 9th annual Wonderful Night on our church campus. This is a night where families from our community are invited to experience a Christmas show, seated dinner, and Christmas shopping for the kids… all free of charge!

Wonderful Night FAQ
Once you arrive for the night at the Chapel, our Guest Registration team will check you in and give each person in your family a nametag. Afterwards, you’ll have the opportunity to drop off your coats at our Coat Check station, so you don’t have to carry them all night. From there, you’ll go into our Worship Center for a short welcome and Christmas music show. Then your family will go together to get a family photo taken. We will print this photo and get it to you before you leave for the night. After your family photo, your family will receive a person called an Ambassador. Your Ambassador will go with your children to our Kid Zone and stay with them the whole time. The Kids Zone will have crafts, coloring, cookie decorating, and many more fun activities for the kids! While your children are in the Kids Zone, you will go to our Toy Shop. Here you can select a present for each of your children and have them wrapped on the spot. After you finish shopping and the kids are finished in the Kid Zone, you will be reunited together. Don’t worry if you finish shopping before the kids are done in the Kid Zone. The kids have so much fun that sometimes they stay a little longer! From there, please proceed to our Food Court to have a seated family dinner together. Once dinner is complete, you will make your way back to the Coat Check to pick up any coats you left with them and then depart to go home. You can plan on the event lasting about an hour and a half from the time you check in at the beginning of the afternoon.
